Cycle de journées d’études – Enseigner le droit hors des frontières nationales (XIXe-XXe siècles)

APPEL A COMMUNICATIONS

Argumentaire

Depuis quelques décennies, l’histoire de l’enseignement du droit à l’époque contemporaine est, en France, un chantier en plein essor. En témoigne la création de la Société pour l’histoire des facultés de droit en 1983, qui a permis la coordination et le développement d’un champ de recherches jusqu’alors délaissé. Cependant, cette histoire des facultés de droit est longtemps restée une histoire des doctrines qui y étaient enseignées et des écoles qui s’y affrontaient. Il a fallu attendre une période plus récente pour que l’historiographie se saisisse des lieux de l’enseignement du droit en eux-mêmes, dans le cadre d’une socio-histoire attentive au fonctionnement de l’institution, à son personnel, ses étudiants, ou encore ses ressources budgétaires. Alors que de telles études fleurissaient déjà dans d’autres disciplines (v. par exemple les travaux de Charles, 2004 ; Picard, 2007 ; Singaravelou, 2009 ; Ferté et Barrera, 2010), les initiatives se sont multipliées ces dernières années chez les juristes, parfois en lien avec les débats actuels liés à l’autonomie des universités ou la rénovation de l’enseignement du droit dans un contexte de globalisation (Ancel et Heuschling, 2016 ; Jamin et Van Caeneghem, 2016).

Ce renouvellement des approches s’est fréquemment adossé à la question des disciplines juridiques. Il a également emprunté le chemin d’un intérêt pour le collectif enseignant. Siprojuris, la base de données bio-bibliographique des professeurs de droit français entre 1804 et 1950, rassemblant 600 individus, a vu le jour, fruit d’un travail collectif coordonné par Catherine Fillon. Ouvrant de nouvelles perspectives pour l’histoire sociale des élites juridiques, cet important déport prosopographique s’est doublé d’un renouvellement de la biographie intellectuelle des professeurs de droit, désormais moins préoccupée de décréter l’existence de « grands juristes » que de décrypter les mécanismes concrets d’accession à la « grandeur intellectuelle ». Enfin, cette nouvelle histoire des facultés de droit s’est souvent concentrée sur des aires géographiques particulières, ce qui a donné lieu à la création, en 2008, du Réseau européen pour l’histoire de l’enseignement du droit.

Le progrès de l’histoire de l’enseignement du droit est par conséquent substantiel pour ce qui concerne la période contemporaine. Ce cycle de journées d’études entend profiter de ces nouveaux acquis pour poursuivre le travail déjà accompli en interrogeant un phénomène peu investi jusqu’alors : l’histoire de l’enseignement du droit hors des frontières nationales aux XIXe et XXe siècles. Certes, l’époque contemporaine est marquée, par rapport au Moyen Âge, notamment, par une incontestable nationalisation du droit et de son enseignement, amorcée à l’époque moderne. A priori, l’on pourrait penser que le temps des pérégrinations académiques est révolu. À y regarder de plus près, toutefois, rien n’est moins sûr. Empruntant des formes variées, une dilatation certaine de l’espace académique français peut également être observée à l’époque contemporaine (Audren et Halpérin, 2013).

– Dans le cadre de l’expansion militaire ou coloniale tout d’abord, la métropole entend plaquer son modèle d’enseignement du droit dans le cadre d’institutions dédiées (facultés de droit dans les départements annexés par l’Empire napoléonien ; École de droit d’Alger, expansion universitaire vers le Levant avec les Écoles de droit du Caire ou de Beyrouth, École de droit d’Hanoï, etc.).

– En dehors du cadre « autoritaire » des régions militairement occupées ou colonisées ensuite, nombreux sont les professeurs de droit, surtout à partir de l’entre-deux-guerres, à promouvoir le droit français à l’étranger, dans le cadre d’une diplomatie culturelle bien comprise (conférences, cours au sein d’instituts culturels, etc.).

Cette appréhension transnationale de l’enseignement du droit se situe par conséquent à l’articulation d’un triple questionnement : la réflexion similaire venue des historiens d’autres disciplines, qui se sont également saisis de cette question ; le tournant historiographique vers l’histoire globale ou connectée, ainsi que vers la question des circulations, qui entend interroger, voire dépasser les cadres nationaux habituellement retenus pour écrire l’histoire ; la problématique actuelle de la dénationalisation/ globalisation de l’enseignement du droit, qui agite la doctrine.

Il nous a semblé qu’un tel questionnement relatif à l’enseignement du droit hors des frontières nationales était de nature à combler un vide historiographique important, tout en éclairant certains enjeux actuels de la globalisation de l’enseignement du droit. Par ailleurs, les contributions de collègues étrangers pouvant offrir un éclairage similaire dans leurs pays seront particulièrement appréciées. Ces trois journées d’études seront divisées thématiquement :

1) Lyon, décembre 2018 « Les lieux et les formes de l’enseignement juridique hors de la métropole »

 La première journée d’études est consacrée aux diverses modalités structurelles de l’enseignement du droit en dehors du cadre métropolitain. Si, dans ses colonies, un État peut finir par envisager de créer des facultés calquées sur le modèle de la métropole, il lui faut généralement faire preuve de davantage d’inventivité dans les territoires étrangers demeurés maîtres de leur souveraineté où, par surcroît, il peut être en concurrence avec d’autres États tout aussi désireux de promouvoir leur influence politique et juridique. L’éventail des multiples formes retenues, ponctuelles ou plus pérennes (des tournées de conférences, à la main-mise sur des écoles locales, en passant par la création d’instituts culturels…) mérite d’être précisé, mais aussi cartographié. Où ? Suivant quelles formes ? Selon quels partenariats et avec quels financements ? sont autant de questions auxquelles cette première journée souhaite apporter des réponses plus précises.

 2) Bordeaux, mars 2020 « Contenu et objectifs de l’enseignement juridique hors de la métropole »

 Cette deuxième journée d’études se concentrera sur la question des cours de droit dispensés hors de la métropole. Quels sont les objectifs de tels enseignements ? (former des élites locales ; apporter une connaissance du droit local aux étudiants français ; acculturer les populations conquises au droit français ; promouvoir la « grandeur » du droit français à l’étranger, etc.). En fonction des différents buts de ces cours, leur contenu diffère-t-il ? Enseigne-t-on de la même manière, par exemple, le droit civil français dans les colonies, dans les pays militairement conquis ou encore dans les instituts culturels à l’étranger ? Autrement dit, les professeurs de droit opèrent-ils une adaptation du contenu de leurs cours en fonction du contexte et/ ou du public auquel ils s’adressent ? C’est, par conséquent, la question des modalités intellectuelles de l’enseignement juridique hors de la métropole qui sera ici abordée.

 3) Aix-Marseille, 2021 « Les acteurs de l’enseignement juridique hors de la métropole »

Enfin, cette troisième journée d’études s’intéressera aux acteurs, qu’ils soient enseignants ou étudiants. Du côté des professeurs, les questionnements concernent, comme souvent dans les problématiques de l’exil durable ou temporaire, la question des profils, des parcours et des raisons, lorsqu’elles existent, qui encouragent à partir. Quelles sont les motivations de ces enseignants ? Matérielles ? Personnelles ? Idéologiques ? Qu’est-ce que l’expérience étrangère nous raconte de ces hommes et de ces femmes : est-elle la preuve d’une plus grande ouverture d’esprit ? A-t-elle des incidences sur leur façon de concevoir et d’enseigner le droit ? Peut-elle avoir un sens politique ?… En parallèle, des interrogations similaires se posent pour les étudiants, en tant qu’individus, mais également en tant que groupes. Les migrations estudiantines peuvent notamment avoir des conséquences sur les équilibres sociaux et culturels des États ou encore sur la circulation des savoirs. Afin de ne pas enfermer ces acteurs du droit dans des spécificités qui pourraient s’avérer trompeuses, nous encourageons leur remise en perspective dans le monde plus global de l’enseignement supérieur, ainsi que les approches comparées.

Short abstract

How are « staying, moving, and settling » translated under colonial and postcolonial conditions into legal relationships between indigenous and settler communities to regulate land in the Americas? How are these legalities constructed, transformed, mobilized, and challenged?

Long abstract

From the early 15th century on, people from all over the world have settled in the Americas. The colonial endeavor transformed the newcomers into settlers and those who already inhabited the Americas into natives. From the very beginning, settler and indigenous communities negotiated — violently or on agreement — some kind of legal relationship defining the rights to land. Today, these legal issues continue as indigenous territories still are occupied by internal refugees and agro-industrial enterprises, often supported by the state. Legal relationships between indigenous and settler communities have varied over time under changing socio-economic conditions and varying shapes of colonial and postcolonial power relations; but they were always highly unequal, giving rise to tensions and violent conflicts. Although most recently international legal regimes for the protection of indigenous land rights have emerged, these land rights conflicts between settlers and natives have not lost their prevalence. Against that background, the panel invites papers with either an ethnographic or ethnohistorical perspective (or a combination of both) on indigeneity and land rights in the Americas. In accordance with the conference theme, the panel shall address how « staying, moving, and settling » under colonial and postcolonial conditions have been and still are translated into legal relationships to regulate land in the Americas and, how this endeavor causes further legal dilemma. Papers should focus on how and by whom these legalities between indigenous and settler communities have been and still are constructed, transformed, mobilized, and challenged in the context of conflicts over land.

Panel AAA : The Role of Language and Class in Legal Identity Formations

The Role of Language and Class in Legal Identity Formations

Session Title: The Role of Language and Class in Legal Identity Formations

Deadline : March 26, 2018

Co-organizers: Nathan Madson and Jessica López-Espino (New York University)

Our proposed panel for the 2018 AAA Annual Meeting is focused on the role of language and class in shaping the resistance, resilience, and adaptation of actors within legal systems. We are particularly interested in exploring the ways in which class and linguistic practices shape legal identities from expatriate communities (Beaverstock 2002, 2011; Hindman 2013; Fechter 2007; Ong 2007), migrant and working-class litigants in bilingual and heritage language settings (Coutin 2000; Ng 2009; Richland 2008), and other transnational and multilingual actors in local and international legal settings. Class and language use can dictate how individuals are recognized and move through legal systems (Conley and O’Barr 1990; Merry 1990; Phillips 1998). From a more macroscopic perspective, which classes and/or linguistic groups enact law? How do these limited voices use law to reify, disrupt, or reshape inequalities that result from class and language differences? How do race and ethnicity intersect, run parallel to, or contradict class and language use in legal settings? Finally, who are the gatekeepers of law and how do their own classed and linguistic identities restrict or open access to others?

We invite papers that discuss the intersection of language and class in the experience of the law and legal institutions. This panel is open to linguistic and sociocultural anthropologists, but will be submitted under the Association for Political and Legal Anthropology. All papers must address the three main foci of the panel: language, class, and law.

Please send your proposed abstract (max 250 words), along with affiliation, current status, and contact information to Nathan Madson (nhm248@nyu.edu) and Jessica Lopez-Espino (jsl610@nyu.edu) by March 26, 2018 3PM EST.

Eligibility:
Accepted panel presenters will be required to be paid Annual Meeting registrants (by April 16 at 3 pm EST) AND have AAA memberships active through November 18. Anthropologists outside of the U.S. or Canada, or non-anthropologists, may request a Membership Exemption, but meeting registration is still required. Membership exemptions must be requested by Thursday, March 29. For financial assistance with registration, please complete the Program Chair Waiver application prior to Thursday, March 29. The completion of an application does not guarantee a waiver will be awarded.

X Congreso de la Red Latinoamericana de Antropología Jurídica. RELAJU. 9 al 13 de octubre de 2018 Santiago – Temuco – Chile

Los desafíos de la diversidad y el pluralismo: a 20 años de la creación de la Red Latinoamericana de Antropología Jurídica. RELAJU.

 En homenaje a Rodolfo Stavenhagen,

Primer Relator de Naciones Unidas para los derechos de los pueblos indígenas.

 PRIMERA CONVOCATORIA

La Red Latinoamericana de Antropología Jurídica – RELAJU-, la Universidad Católica de Temuco y la Facultad de Derecho de la Universidad de Chile, tienen el agrado de invitar a los miembros de la Red, académicos/as, estudiantes, miembros de comunidades indígenas y afro descendientes, organizaciones de la sociedad civil, defensores de los derechos humanos, miembros del poder judicial y a todas aquellas personas interesadas, a participar en el X Congreso de la Red Latinoamericana de Antropología jurídica.

1. Antecedentes.

La Red Latinoamericana de Antropología Jurídica surge en 1997, en el marco del 49º Congreso Internacional de Americanistas realizado en la ciudad de Quito, Ecuador. La Red está integrada por antropólogos/as, abogados/as, sociólogos/as y otros especialistas en ciencias sociales de diferentes partes del mundo que trabajan en Latinoamérica en el estudio y promoción del derecho de los pueblos indígenas y otras minorías, del pluralismo jurídico con una visión crítica, social y antropológica del derecho.

Entre sus objetivos se encuentra impulsar el análisis, estudio y difusión de los derechos propios de los pueblos indígenas que configuran el pluralismo jurídico, así como propiciar un espacio para el debate de problemas teóricos y prácticos derivados de la diversidad y la relación entre el derecho estatal y otras formas no estatales de derecho, de sus múltiples interacciones, y de las nuevas modalidades de relación que surgen en el contexto de la transnacionalización de la ley y los derechos.

Desde su creación, RELAJU se reúne cada dos años en diferentes países, con la finalidad de propiciar espacios para el debate y el intercambio de conocimiento en torno a los complejos procesos que conciernen a los pueblos indígenas en América y el mundo.

El primer encuentro se realizó sobre el tema “Pluralismo Jurídico en América Latina”, que tuvo lugar en la ciudad de Quito, Ecuador, en agosto de 1997; posteriormente, bajo el lema “Derecho Consuetudinario y Pluralismo Jurídico: Desafíos en el Tercer Milenio” se realizó el Segundo Encuentro Internacional en la ciudad de Arica, Chile, en marzo de 2000. En el año 2002 la sede del Tercer Encuentro fue Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, con el tema “Pluralismo Jurídico: Presente y Futuro”. En agosto del año 2004, se realizó el Cuarto Encuentro de RELAJU con el lema “Globalización y Pluralismo jurídico: luchas sociales y legales en la construcción de estados interculturales” en la ciudad de Quito, Ecuador. El Quinto Encuentro se realizó en el 2006 en Oaxtepec, México con el tema central “Justicia y diversidad: retos de la globalización”. En octubre de 2008 se realizó el VI Congreso en Colombia relativo a “Diversidad étnica y cultural desarrollos constitucionales, políticas y prácticas nacionales”. En Lima, Perú se realizó el séptimo encuentro el año 2010 denominado “Identidades, interculturalidad, pluralismo jurídico y derechos colectivos”. En el 2012 se realizó el octavo encuentro relativo a “El pluralismo jurídico en América Latina: Visiones críticas desde la teoría y la práctica” en Sucre, Bolivia. Finalmente, en Pirenópolis, Brasil (2015), se realizó el noveno encuentro con el tema “Sociedades plurales y estados nacionales: límites y desafíos para la efectividad de los derechos”.

RELAJU está vinculada con la Comisión de Derecho Consuetudinario y Pluralismo Legal (Commissionon Folk Law and Legal Pluralism) integrada por especialistas del derecho, la antropología y la sociología de diferentes partes del mundo. La Comisión es también parte de la Unión Internacional de Ciencias Antropológicas y Etnológicas (IUAES) desde 1979, que a su vez se integra a la Asociación Internacional de Ciencias Legales (IALS) en la oficina principal de la UNESCO.

  1. Presentación temas centrales.

 En las últimas décadas las demandas de reconocimiento y autonomía de los pueblos indígenas generaron transformaciones sociales y culturales que han incidido de forma directa en el panorama político y jurídico y han producido cambios estructurales al interior de las sociedades latinoamericanas, tras la necesidad de un efectivo diálogo intercultural que asegure el reconocimiento y la valoración de la diversidad étnica y cultural en Latinoamérica.

En la actualidad el análisis y estudio de los conflictos se ha complejizado debido a fenómenos sociales cada vez más masivos como la migración y a la emergencia de movimientos sociales que confluyen con las demandas históricas de los pueblos indígenas. Lo anterior crea nuevos retos para el diseño de planteamientos teóricos y metodológicos que permitan realizar un cabal entendimiento de la realidad latinoamericana y para la generación de propuestas que permitan solucionar las dificultades derivadas de la relación entre el Estado y la sociedad.

Así, a 20 años de la creación de la Red Latinoamericana de Antropología Jurídica, es necesario realizar un balance jurídico, antropológico y politológico en torno dichos procesos sociales, proponer contribuciones teóricas y prácticas a las problemáticas sociales actuales y analizar la incidencia de la RELAJU en las transformaciones sociales e institucionales para realizar propuestas a futuro.

Siguiendo el esquema de los encuentros anteriores, se llevará a cabo un Curso pre-congreso en la Universidad de Chile (Santiago) los días 9 y 10 de octubre de 2018, el cual pretende cubrir demandas formativas sobre herramientas teóricas y metodológicas en torno a la antropología jurídica, pluralismo jurídico, interculturalidad y derechos indígenas. Posteriormente, del 11 al 13 de octubre de 2018, se realizará en la Universidad Católica de Temuco, en la ciudad de Temuco, el X Congreso propone privilegiar el diálogo y la discusión abierta e interdisciplinaria de temas actuales de la Antropología, el Derecho, la Ciencia Política y disciplinas afines.

Ejes temáticos

Se propone que los contenidos de las mesas y simposios versen sobre los siguientes ejes temáticos:

  1. Los retos de las identidades y diversidad cultural en las sociedades latinoamericanas del siglo XXI.
  2. Antropología jurídica latinoamericana, los derechos de los pueblos indígenas, los afrodescendientes y otras minorías.
  3. Movimiento indígena y participación política.
  4. Tierras, territorios, autonomía y mecanismos de reparación.
  5. Proyectos de inversión en territorios indígenas y consulta previa.
  6. Demandas indígenas, conflictos, violencia, criminalización y tratamiento de las víctimas.
  7. Pluralismo jurídico, interlegalidad y derecho propio.
  8. Acceso a la justicia, diversidad cultural, peritaje antropológico, estándares de debido proceso.
  9. Plurinacionalidad y nuevo constitucionalismo.
  10. Desafíos en temas de género, etnicidad y procesos migratorios.
  11. Medio ambiente, cambio climático y reasentamiento de pueblos indígenas.

Call for LAW NET papers EASA conference in Stockholm, 14-17 August 2018

The conference organisers selected 4 LAW NET panels. We invite you to submit your papers to these network panels.

The Call for Papers is now open and closes at 23:59 CET on 9 April.

All paper proposals must be made via the online system, and not via email.

1. The anthropology of emotions and law [LAW NET]

Convenors

Gerhard Anders (University of Edinburgh)
Birgit Müller (CNRS)

Short abstract

The law tends to emphasise rationality but courtrooms are often sites where emotions are displayed and lawyers appeal to emotions to strengthen their arguments. This panel examines the complex relations between emotions and the law drawing on ethnographies of legal discourse, courts and disputes.

https://nomadit.co.uk/easa/easa2018/conferencesuite.php/panels/6681

2. Investigating accountability: practices and performances [LAW NET]

Convenors

Jane Cowan (Sussex University)
Julie Billaud (Allegra Lab)

Short abstract

Individuals and institutions are increasingly called upon to ‘give an account’ of themselves. Building on the vibrant discussion on audit culture, we invite papers that investigate—ethnographically, theoretically, ethically—existing and emergent practices and performances of accountability.

https://nomadit.co.uk/easa/easa2018/conferencesuite.php/panels/6695

3. Transnational Corporations, Industrial Disasters and Environmental Hazards. Allocating Moral and Legal Responsibilities Across Different National Contexts [LAW NET]

Convenors

Antonio Maria Pusceddu (Universitat de Barcelona)

The Uses and Futures of Interdisciplinary Legal Studies

 

http://ils2018.weebly.com/

 

A one-day Conference at the University of Kent, Canterbury

15th June 2018

Kent Law School is proud to launch and host the inaugural Interdisciplinary Legal Studies (ILS) Network and bi-annual Conference. The inaugural postgraduate research conference titled The Uses and Futures of Interdisciplinary Legal Studies aims to provide an initial forum towards the critical exploration of interdisciplinary research/studies in and of law, as well as the formation of an informal research network between cognate PhD students (Interdisciplinary Legal Studies Network – ILS) and Law Schools. The following Schools have already joined the ILS network: Kent Law School, Westminster Law School, Birkbeck Law School, Warwick Law School, Universidad de los Andes, Law School, Melbourne Law School, LSE Law School, Science Po, Law School and the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais Law School.

The Conference will not follow the conventional pattern of papers and plenaries, but rather aim for collective discussion at first in small groups, and then more widely with the support of 6 Guest Scholars: Prof. Diamond Ashiagbor (Institute of Advanced Legal Studies); Prof. Kate Bedford (Birmingham Law School, University of Birmingham); Prof. Emilios Christodoulidis (School of Law, University of Glasgow); Dr. Emilie Cloatre (Reader in Law, Kent Law School, University of Kent); Prof. Marieke de Goede (Department of Politics, University of Amsterdam); and Prof. Ambreena Manji (School of Law and Politics, Cardiff University).

In order to facilitate participation and collective reflection PhD students in law, as well as PhD students in other disciplines, with an interest in thinking about law, however widely conceived) are invited to submit:

(1) a 200-word summary of their doctoral research project; and

(2) a 200-word summary brief on their experience of/reflection on interdisciplinary research in/of law.

Please email your briefs to: KLSResearch@kent.ac.uk by 15th March 2018

 

Conference Theme

Arguably, modern legal scholarship is today more vibrant, complex and inter-disciplinary than ever before. Legal studies and legal practices are increasingly informed by a wide range of complex interdisciplinary borrowing, interaction and cooperation. Furthermore, different approaches to legal research and education, as varied as doctrinal, neo-realist, socio-legal, feminist, neo-Marxist, law-in-action, critical, contextual and so forth, appear to concur, often through a growing degree of self-criticism, that the emergence of sophisticated interdisciplinary scholarship amidst various political perspectives, methods and disciplines has influenced or, at least, to an extent challenged legal teaching, learning, researching, decision-making, concept-constructing and vocational practice. Our primary concern in this conference is with inquiring into the manner and purpose of the interdisciplinary research experience in contemporary broad-minded legal studies.

Interdisciplinary practices and aims have been subject to contention, as well as variation and recalibration, for many decades. Is it, for instance, disciplinary integration and/or interaction that are aimed at? Is it, instead, juxtaposition, coordination, and the rigorous ability to read parallel sequences (often categorized as falling under ‘multidisciplinarity’)? Is it the critique of the structural formation of knowledges, or the ultimate transcending of a discipline that is aimed at (its transformation, often categorized under the name of ‘transdisciplinarity’)?

What if, however, interdisciplinary legal research aimed at neither a mere self-sufficient juxtaposition, nor an over-ambitious synthesis? Who would be the audience and what would be the purpose of interdisciplinary research and study of law and in law? It is often observed, for example, that interdisciplinary attempts in legal research borrow methods or material (however successfully) from another discipline in order to then near-exclusively address a legal audience, without manifesting, in fact, a genuine attempt to study as well as engage with that other discipline’s audience. What, then, if interdisciplinarity begins only once it admits that distinctions run through disciplines as much as between them and that therefore one has to study them rigorously in all sorts of ways (be they methodological and theoretical, instrumental and critical, endogenous and exogenous etc.)?

Academic disciplines are indeed contingent and highly permeable products of complex historical processes. Distinctions and synergies between disciplines are equally contingent on different histories and cultures (for example, history is the foundational social science in France, while in Britain it is categorized under the humanities; equally we can ask: is law a social science or a part of the humanities?). Lacking some kind of absolute consistency, disciplines differentiate their functions through transforming knowledges and practices, in the self-defining and self-serving interior dynamics. Disciplines are however a recent modern invention and, more than it is usually admitted, they have always remained in a state of almost permanent ‘crisis’, flux and cognitive (as well political or social) challenge. Within the institution of the University disciplinary self-definition and self-defense has intensified, often forgetting that disciplines themselves are re-created or redefined through collisions between differing cognitive spheres.

Interdisciplinarity, it is then proposed, may be neither a panacea for all the problems one encounters in legal research and higher education more widely, nor an unnecessary opportune distraction from the rigor of a disciplinary program of study. In addition, interdisciplinarity, in its multiple and complex formations and deformations, should not be constrained by the success of its hype. Too often, as a mostly managerial or marketing buzzword without much challenging substance, it has infiltrated Universities to the point that now almost all departments and all disciplines aim to foster interdisciplinarity in research and education. While it is most challenging a climate in which we find ourselves, we think that there has not been a better time to consider, anew, and with persistent care, the paths, claims and challenges of inter/disciplinarity in legal research (and by extension education more broadly). If interdisciplinarity is not to be or remain an empty signifier, yet another fashionable façade of progress and innovation (or even the latest desperate attempt to de-socialise and isolate knowledge), we need to ask what becomes of/in interdisciplinary formations and deformations of knowledge?

Résumé

Pour les besoins d’un numéro de la revue Communications sur le thème des droits humains, nous sollicitons des propositions d’articles inédits présentant et analysant les nouvelles luttes, aujourd’hui, pour le respect de ces droits. Comment, au XXIe siècle, dénoncer, documenter, combattre les violations des droits humains ? Qui sont les acteurs de ces combats ? Quel est leur impact ? On s’intéressera à la fois aux nouveaux agents, groupes, associations, pressions citoyennes, portant ces combats, aux formes de leurs interventions dans l’espace public et à la façon dont ils contribuent à une extension du périmètre de ces droits et à leur redéfinition juridique. Nous souhaitons des études concrètes. Une attention particulière sera accordée aux situations et expériences non européennes.

Argumentaire

La Déclaration universelle des droits de l’homme, adoptée le 10 décembre 1948, dont l’article premier stipule que « Tous les êtres humains naissent libres et égaux en dignité et en droits », affirme comme principe intangible à l’échelle de l’humanité tout entière le fait que la dignité (mentionnée en premier), les libertés et les droits fondamentaux sont inhérents à chaque être humain et inaliénables. Si cette Déclaration ne fait pas partie du droit international dit « contraignant » (c’est-à-dire d’application obligatoire), elle constitue un texte de référence qui a inspiré nombre de traités internationaux, eux légalement contraignants, relatifs aux droits de l’homme et à leur développement à l’échelle internationale.

Ces droits sont toutefois critiqués de diverses manières. Au nom d’une vision inégalitaire de l’humanité, le mépris pour les « droits-de-l’hommistes », selon une expression venue de l’extrême droite, reprend de la vigueur. Des pouvoirs non démocratiques les récusent en invoquant le relativisme culturel, comme en Chine où le discours officiel oppose l’« harmonie » d’inspiration confucéenne aux droits de l’homme, d’inspiration occidentale. Plus profondément, la notion philosophique, politique et juridique d’universalité fait l’objet de contestations et d’interrogations. Au nom de l’histoire, et notamment de l’histoire coloniale, ces droits, proclamés et exportés par un monde occidental qui ne les a pas respectés, sont dénoncés comme l’alibi d’un impérialisme culturel. L’universalisme abstrait, aveugle par principe aux différences, s’avère par là même aveugle aux discriminations et inégalités. D’où la question, sujette à polémiques, particulièrement en France (cf. les débats sur la parité ou les « statistiques ethniques » par exemple) : pour assurer l’égalité réelle des droits, ne faut-il pas assouplir l’universalité formelle du droit ?

Nul doute que ces droits sont inégalement garantis et que leurs violations sont innombrables. Ils ne sont ni la garantie d’un progrès inéluctable, ni une promesse illusoire. Ils doivent être en permanence repensés et leur extension comme leur universalisation dépendent avant tout des combats menés en leur nom. Nous considérons en effet, avec Danièle Lochak, que « les droits de l’homme ne sont pas un corps de principes gravés une fois pour toutes dans le marbre. Ils ont une histoire qui continue à s’écrire en fonction d’enjeux complexes et entremêlés : politiques, idéologiques et juridiques. » (Les Droits de l’homme, La Découverte, 2009). Prenant acte de cette histoire, nous préférons ici parler de droits humains. Ceux-ci sont confrontés à des défis nouveaux liés à la mondialisation. Et dans cette mondialisation, le phénomène des migrations est devenu central.

Pour les besoins d’un numéro de la revue Communications sur ce thème, nous sollicitons des propositions d’articles inédits présentant et analysant les nouvelles luttes, aujourd’hui, pour le respect des droits humains. Comment, au xxie siècle, dénoncer, documenter, combattre les violations des droits humains ? Qui sont les acteurs de ces combats ? Quel est leur impact ? On s’intéressera à la fois aux nouveaux agents, groupes, associations, pressions citoyennes, portant ces combats, aux formes de leurs interventions dans l’espace public et à la façon dont ils contribuent à une extension du périmètre de ces droits et à leur redéfinition juridique. Nous souhaitons des études concrètes. Une attention particulière sera accordée aux situations et expériences non européennes.

Conference Call: ‘Punishment: Negotiating Society’ Location: Halle (Saale) February 14, 2018

Conference Call
‘Punishment: Negotiating Society’
14 – 16 February, 2018
Venue: Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, Halle an der Saale, Germany
Deadline for abstract submission: 31 December, 2017

Confirmed keynote speaker:
Professor John Pratt: “The end of penal populism; the rise of political populism?”

Call

REMEP is a multidisciplinary research school that examines the concepts of retaliation, mediation and punishment from different theoretical and methodological angles, with a focus on their role on peace and social order. This conference looks at the social context of punishment.
We start from the premise that punishment involves not only a handful of actors (i.e., members of the jurisdiction, perpetrators, victims, etc.) but a complex array of actors, including families, kin groups, and other polities that judge and punish; peers; associations; the audience(s) (including the media audience and the (mass) public); the punished (including, group-, surrogate- or proxy-punishment); and executive bodies such as states and private prison managements. We see punishment not only in the context of retaliation, deterrence, prevention, incapacitation and rehabilitation/retribution, but also as a reflection of society and as a constant negotiation of legitimacy, a renegotiation of social order and control. Populism, neoliberalism, misogyny, nationalism, and racism – to name just a few phenomena – are negotiated in the context of punishment.

This conference will be anchored around three key issues:

1. Theory, legitimacy and history of punishment

In this section, we propose to concentrate on the development of a coherent framework and theories of punishment in order to elaborate the semantics of punishment. Topics within this include the purposes of punishment in various legal systems and the historical shifts that punishment has undergone. We further seek theoretical contributions related to the informal, micro, local, national, international, and global influences on punishment policies and especially the challenges that emerge when these levels interact. Both historically and in the present, challenges can be observed especially at the fringes of normativities, it is here where legitimation is scrutinized. This occurs, for instance, in cases in which the perpetrator is also a victim, e.g. in the case of (former) child soldiers. A less obvious example are trials that shift venues from local to national or to the International Criminal Court, including changes of prisons and favourable prison conditions. This can culminate in the evasion of mundane punishment, replacing it with divine punishment by shifting the discourse from a legal to a religious one. Secular, domestic, familial, religious, cultural, and human rights discourses interact and demand for a more complex understanding of criminality and punishment. Furthermore, these interactions result in a need to find alternatives to criminal procedures that include restorative justice.

2. Media audiences, mass publics, and group punishment

The contested term “penal populism” is at the centre of a debate that questions the involvement of “the public” in the criminal justice systems, based on the argument that the presence of the public tends to encourage symbolic actions which disregard the proportionality principle in favour of populist gain. Since populism targets political success in elections, it potentially leads to preventive policies that are detrimental to minority groups, increasing the likelihood of punishment becoming a matter of living on the wrong side of the street or having the wrong passport. Such populist measures further reduce the use of risk prevention in the form of social programmes, instead giving preference to repressive measures. We are seeking to unravel the interaction of media, populists, and the public that is said to have weakened the principle of equality before the law; simultaneously, we propose to move away from this approach and analyse the justice system now and in the past as a tool of and for governing and for the creation of social order and the exertion of social control, benefitting some but not necessarily all.

3. Interdisciplinary approach to punishment

To ensure different approaches to punishment and critical perspectives on our law- and socialscience-based analysis, we especially invite scholars from other disciplines – for example, neuroscientists who are working on understanding the relation of the brain to punishment and behaviour and investigating changes in the frontal cortex that occur during and before acts of crime. Such research puts questions of free will, social control, deviant behaviour, and crime at the forefront. Further, we invite political economists who are studying the effects, benefits, and disadvantages of private prisons and home-confinement technologies and how these increase the likelihood of mass condemnations; and evolutionary anthropologists who include the evolutionary effects of punishment in their studies. Speakers will be invited by the organizers on the basis of submitted abstracts. PhD students within the REMEP program are encouraged to submit an abstract.

Speakers will be invited by the organizers on the basis of submitted abstracts. For invited speakers travel- and acommodation costs will be covered (economy fares). PhD students within the REMEP program are encouraged to submit an abstract. Abstracts should not exceed 500 words and should be submitted to Timm Sureau () and Günther Schlee () by December 31, 2017. Further questions should be directed to the coordinator Timm Sureau. A selection from submitted abstracts will be made by early January 2018.

Socio-legal studies/sociologie du droit: methods, traditions, theories in France and the UK

Description

This workshop stems from several observations: first, that socio-legal scholarship as a whole is strongly influenced by both institutional contexts and local scholarly traditions, which has led it to adopt very varied forms across jurisdictions. Second, that this diversity is both an interesting object of study to understand the possibilities and forms of socio-legal research and critique, and an obstacle to some cross-jurisdictional conversations. Third, that this is particularly noticeable and interesting in the context of France and the UK. While socio-legal studies have significantly developed over the past few decades, both in the UK and (though arguably to a lesser extent) in France, cross-channel conversations across relevant communities have remained limited. In addition, the forms that socio-legal scholarship has adopted in those two contexts are strikingly different (see: Renaud Colson, Stewart Field, “Socio-legal Studies in France: Beyond the Law Faculty”, Journal of Law and Society, vol. 43, no. 2, 2016, p. 285-311).

Although various bridges and connections have been made – through common projects, borrowing of ideas, methods or theories, or occasional encounters at conferences or within topic-specific contexts – there has historically been limited efforts to engage more broadly the growing socio-legal communities in France and the UK. Such conversations on a broader scale, however, could be highly interesting at several levels. In spite of shared aspirations, UK socio-legal studies and its French equivalents have developed in very different ways, sharing some theoretical and methodological traditions, while differing in many others. In addition, the institutional settings in which each movement has developed are in stark contrast, which in turn has certainly influenced the shape of scholarship itself. Reflecting on those different contexts, and their influences is useful in a context of continuous pressure on the development and maintenance of interdisciplinary legal scholarship, both in research and teaching.

In this workshop, we want to reflect on those different trajectories, and what they have to tell us about ‘socio-legal studies in context’, but also aim to bring together this scholarly diversity in order to explore ways forward, in terms of collaborations, and in terms of methodological and conceptual explorations.
Therefore, this workshop positions itself both as a first step towards a broader set of discussions and as a significant opportunity to reflect on the impact on our own traditions on the forms of knowledge produced.

The workshop has three key aims:

1) To reflect on how different institutional contexts and traditions have shaped socio-legal thought and scholarship in France and the UK
2) To bring together contrasting approaches developed by those traditions
3) To foster future exchange and research across communities in France and the UK and facilitate new collaborations

The workshop will be held in English.

Format/call for contributions

The workshop will to be based around 4 sessions. In the first three sessions, short papers will be given by keynote speakers, followed by longer questions, discussions and exchange.

For the final session, we would like to invite contributions from early career scholars (including PhD students), in the form of very brief presentations of 8-10 mins, offering an overview of a project, with particular attention the methodological/conceptual approach adopted. An abstract of 200 words should be submitted by email to e.cloatre@kent.ac.uk by the 8th December 2017. We will endeavour to respond by the 15th December.

Registration

To register for the conference, A small fee of £50 will be requested for registration for participants other than speakers.
We may be able to offer limited financial support for ECRs for travels or accommodation. If you would need such support in order to attend the conference, please let us know as soon as possible.

Self-identity and Otherness: Shia Approaches to Religious Pluralism
This panel is an examination of the history of Shia views of other religious traditions as well as the contemporary legal-theological reflection about religious pluralism. The aim is to discuss the theoretical and conceptual issues related to religious plurality from the perspective of Shia Jurisprudence (fiqh) and the theological implications of such a perspective in the construction of religious identity debates. Shias are the minority group within Islam, having broken with the majority Sunnis in a disagreement over the Prophet Mohammed’s successors and the role that his successors were to play. With this panel, we intend to reflect on Shia self- perceptions and perceptions of others with respect to religion, covering both historical and contemporary approaches. The papers presented will reflect upon the investigation of the nature and dynamics of Shia normative responses to religious diversity and pluralism and the challenges they face. The aim of the panel is to bring together academics and researchers whose works are related to the topic and to discuss recent theoretical and conceptual achievements in the
field.

Call for contributions/registration

Context and purpose :
This workshop stems from several observations: first, that socio legal scholarship as a whole is strongly influenced by both institutional contexts and local scholarly traditions, which has led it to adopt very varied forms across jurisdictions. Second, that this diversity is both an interesting object of study to understand the possibilities and forms of socio-legal research and critique, and an obstacle to some cross-jurisdictional conversations. Third, that this is particularly noticeable and interesting in the context of France and the UK.

While socio-legal studies have significantly developed over the past few decades, both in the UK and (though arguably to a lesser extent)  in France, cross-channel conversations across relevant communities
have remained limited. In addition, the forms that socio-legal scholarship has adopted in those two contexts are strikingly different (see: Renaud Colson, Stewart Field, “Socio-legal Studies in France: Beyond the Law Faculty”, Journal of Law and Society, vol. 43, no. 2, 2016, p. 285-311).

Although various bridges and connections have been made – through common projects, borrowing of ideas, methods or theories, or occasional encounters at conferences or within topic-specific contexts – there has historically been limited efforts to engage more broadly the growing socio-legal communities in France and the UK. Such conversations on a broader scale, however, could be highly interesting at several levels. In spite of shared aspirations, UK socio-legal studies and its French equivalents have developed in very different ways, sharing some theoretical and methodological traditions, while differing in many others. In addition, the institutional settings in which each movement has developed are in stark contrast, which in turn has certainly influenced the shape of scholarship itself. Reflecting on those different contexts, and their influences is useful in a context of continuous pressure on the development and maintenance of interdisciplinary legal scholarship, both in research and teaching.

In this workshop, we want to reflect on those different trajectories, and what they have to tell us about ‘socio-legal studies in context’, but also aim to bring together this scholarly diversity in order to  explore ways forward, in terms of collaborations, and in terms of methodological and conceptual explorations. Therefore, this workshop positions itself both as a first step towards a broader set of discussions and as a significant opportunity to reflect on the impact on our own traditions on the forms of knowledge produced.

The workshop has three key aims:
1) To reflect on how different institutional contexts and traditions have shaped socio-legal thought and scholarship in France and the UK
2) To bring together contrasting approaches developed by those traditions
3) To foster future exchange and research across communities in France and the UK and facilitate new collaborations.

The workshop will be held in English.

Format/call for contributions :
The workshop will to be based around four sessions. In the first three sessions, short papers will be given by keynote speakers, followed by longer questions, discussions and exchange. For the final session, we would like to invite contributions from early career scholars (including PhD students), in the form of very brief presentations of 8-10 mins, offering an overview of a project, with particular attention the methodological/conceptual approach adopted. An abstract of 200 words should be submitted by email to e.cloatre@kent.ac.uk by the 8th December 2017. We will endeavour to respond by the 15th December.

CALL : CfP for the Penal « Archive, Promise, and the Future in African Contexts »

CfP for the Penal « Archive, Promise, and the Future in African Contexts » at the African Studies Association in Germany (VAD e.V.)

Conference, 27-30 June 2018 in Leipzig, Germany.

Deadline for handing in abstracts is (already) November, 30th 2017 via this link:
https://vad-africanconnections.de/panels/

Penal Outline:

This panel addresses the relation between promise, archive, and the future, and how the archive forms memory and creates a tension between the past and the living present, the past and the future, and between the actual and the virtual in African contexts. The structure of the archive not only preserves but shapes memory and is always future-oriented. As Derrida explains in Archive Fever: “the archivization produces as much as it records the event.” We are interested in how the archive embraces contradictory experiences of irredeemable losses in the past and the future hope. In African contexts, the archive continues to remain instrumental in bringing to the fore these contradictory experiences and at the same time lies in the ‘experience of the promise.’

We are specifically interested in promises and well as challenges of the archive in regard to access to the past, the forming of memory and imagination of history, postcolonial and decolonial knowledge practices, the establishment of evidence and facts, the workings of denial and denunciations based on archival work and its prospect of comparison, the possibilities and limits of practices of critique.
Contributions should trace some of the connections and disconnections, conceptions and misconceptions, access and exclusion regarding knowledge and comparison in relation to archival practices. Specific interest will be paid to forms of organization, writing, technologies of inscription, laws, everyday practices and narratives that accompany the archive and its quest toward memory making, knowledge preservation, but also ignorance, denial, or forgetting.

Call for papers : Laws Across Codes and Laws Decoded

Laws Across Codes and Laws Decoded

28 June – 30 June 2018 at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris)
The Organising Committee of the 5th Biennal Conference and the Executive Council of the European Society for Comparative Legal History are pleased to call for papers for the upcoming conference to be held. The main theme picks up threads of thought from the earlier ESCLH conferences in Valencia (2010), Amsterdam (2012), Macerata (2014) and Gdansk (2016) to explore what codes and codification have meant and continue to mean for legal systems with codes, and for those without. Papers should be submitted, as set out below, by 15 November 2017.

The conference will focus on the issue of codes or alternatives to codes as instruments of transforming laws in Europe and in the world. While codes, and the process of codification, are at least familiar if not always completely understood, this conference challenges us to look deeper at what a code meant for the legal systems affected by it. The conference seeks to understand the whole process of codification, from political aspects to its conception, agreement and roll-out, through to technical matters of drafting and implementation and even to linguistic matters of expression and deeper meanings. Challenging the importance for legal rules to be inserted within or outside a code, the conference proposes to examine all sorts of codes, and not only the most known civil codes: general codes as special (such as penal, commercial, labour, family, military) codes, officious codes as official codes. The conference seeks also to study the effects the codified structure of the norms could have on their content and on the way law functions, notably through case law and law writing. All the historical situations in which law reform took place outside of codification and outside of codes can be questioned could be relevant in helping us to understand law reform through codes or its alternatives.

Papers should be novel, properly researched and referenced. They should address the conference theme, exploring doctrinal, theoretical, cultural or methodological aspects of comparative legal history. They must also be comparative, addressing more than one system of laws. The organisers particularly welcome addressing multiple legal systems or cultures. This includes where a similar legal system functions in different cultural circles.

Practical details:

  1. To offer a paper, please send the title of their paper, a short abstract (of 200-400 word, absolutely no more and a short CV (no more than 1 page) by 15 November 2017 to the organizing committee, c/o jean-louis.halperin@ens.fr.
  2. The presentations should be in English.
  3. It is also possible to submit a complete proposal for one or more panels (3 papers normally).
  4. The list of accepted papers will be announced by 8 December 2017.

Shortly, a conference website will be launched with fuller details of the conference. For the moment, some transport and accommodation information follows.

Paris offers many accommodation possibilities ranging from five-star hotels, through smaller hotels in the Quartier latin and private rooms to beds in youth and student hostels. For some postgraduates the Ecole Normale Supérieure could offer cheaper accommodation in student dormitories.
